Every 100 Years - The Woody Guthrie Centennial Songbook by : Woody Guthrie
2012 would have been the 100th birthday of American singer/songwriter Woody Guthrie. To mark his extraordinary achievements in songwriting; we are releasing this souvenir centennial songbook. Woody Guthrie wrote over 3;000 songs in his lifetime; yet only 300 or so were ever recorded. At the invitation of Guthrie's daughter; Nora Guthrie; contemporary singer/songwriters have set music to Guthrie's previously unpublished lyrics. Musicians such as Billy Bragg; Wilco; Dropkick Murphys; Jonatha Brooke; Jay Farrar; Tom Morello; Lou Reed; The Klezmatics; Hans-Eckardt Wenzel; Madeleine Peyroux; Janis Ian; Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion; and Woody's son; Arlo Guthrie; have shown us how timeless Woody's words are.

The book features his classics such as: This Land Is Your Land • Jesus Christ • Do Re Mi • Pretty Boy Floyd • Roll On Columbia • Pastures of Plenty • Deportee • Riding in My Car • and more; as well as hits from the next generation of Guthrie co-authors: California Stars • I'm Shippin' Up to Boston • The Jolly Banker • Way Over Yonder in the Minor Key • Hoodoo Voodoo • Ease My Revolutionary Mind • Ingrid Bergman • My Peace • Mermaid's Avenue • Happy Joyous Hanukkah • Every 100 Years • and many others.
